    Fantastic cottage to spend Christmas in. Lovely cosy place with everything you need. Great location close to many of the most beautiful places the lakes has to offer. Easy to get to. The cottage is well decorated, furnished, and equipped. The pub is a few doors away, friendly, with good food and a large open fire. We would definitely recommend for couples or a family of four.

The property

A cosy mid-terrace cottage, formerly homes for the local bobbin mill-workers, located in the sleepy village of Spark Bridge, just 5.5 miles from Ulverston.

This comfy cottage enjoys views across the river to the rear, and is just ten minutes’ drive from Coniston Water on the boundary of the beautiful Lake District National Park.

As soon as you step inside, you’ll immediately feel welcome.

The open plan living area, with its cosy sitting area and kitchen/diner, provides a perfect place to settle together.

A door opens onto the garden, with steps leading down to extensive shared lawns, garden chairs and benches and the River Crake.

With lovely accommodation, which has been tastefully enhanced to maximise the original features, the cottage offers one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and a shower room on the first floor.

Outside, at the rear, there are open grounds shared with the rest of the terrace, which stretches down to the river.

Just a short walk takes you to the village pub and benches on the village green alongside the River Crake, while two miles up the road in Greenodd you will find a couple more pubs, a bakery, a butcher’s shop, a fish and chip shop and a convenience store.

Being ideally situated on the edge of the Lake District, there are lots of beautiful areas to explore, including the quaint Lakeland village of Hawkshead, which is just 20 minutes’ drive away, whilst from the cottage itself you can step out and enjoy numerous paths and bridleways running through spectacular countryside.

For a fun-filled family day, why not pop over to the Haverthwaite and Lakeside Steam Railway, and embark on a steam train to Lakeside, before joining the Windermere Steamer for a cruise up the most famous lake in the district?

This charming cottage will make an excellent base for friends, families and couples seeking a character holiday home.
